'Game of Thrones' season 8 episode 3 hints that Arya may kill Cersei as well
Melisandre had told Arya when she had met her for the first time that she would close many eyes 'brown eyes, blue eyes, green eyes', does this include Cersei's?
The Battle of Winterfell was won majorly because of Melisandre's timely warning to Arya about how she will close many eyes. Eyes that were 'brown, green... blue'. This gives Arya the idea to approach Godswood, on her own without any backup to kill the Night King, as she would anyone in the list. While we should celebrate this victory, there is another war coming with Cersei leading the forces with the help of Euron Greyjoy preparing to take on Winterfell's victors.
The outcome of this war seems a bit uncertain since Cersei has more number of men who would be fighting for her. Secondly, she also had the ships that Euron had so dutifully provided her with to prove that he was worthy of her. And finally, who will be the one to kill Cersei? There is the prophecy of Valonqar, of course, which fans have guessed could mean Jaime or Tyrion.
But after the latest episode of 'Battle of Winterfell' has aired, there seems to be a possibility that Arya could, in fact, be the one to kill Cersei. Back when Melisandre had met Arya for the first time, she had said, "I see darkness in you and in that darkness, eyes staring back at me. Brown eyes, blue eyes, green eyes. Eyes you'll shut forever." And this was back in season 3 when Arya was not No One, but a little girl out for revenge.
She has followed the prophecy, by first killing Walder Frey, who had brown and then by knifing the Night King in the gut on Sunday's episode. As everyone knew, he had blue eyes. So does that mean Cersei would be next in the list since she has emerald green eyes? If that is true, does it really come down to Arya killing either Jaime or Tyrion and using their face to get closer to Cersei or is the Valonqar herself? This is also possible if we were to go by the theory that Sansa who was once married to Tyrion will be considered Cersei's sibling and so Arya could be the younger sibling who will end Cersei's life.
The next episode of 'Game of Thrones' season 8 will see the Northerners celebrate their victory, pay respect to the people who have fallen and then get ready for the war against Cersei's army.
